Two painting schools are based in the village, as the architecture and countryside offer ample inspiration for artists. The village is also home to a beautiful church, Notre-Dame-de-L'Assomption, which is home to the 14th century Cross of the Counts of Armangac, studded with 310 jewels. Our house also has a newly renovated separate studio flat with kitchen and bath suitable for a couple or a single traveler. This flat can be rented by itself or in addition to the main house.

Superb Experience
The house and Castelnau were charming and just what we needed after a 2 week tour of Spain in the heat of September. The house is well appointed and our bedrooms had views of gorgeous rolling hills and vineyards. We enjoyed preparing leisurely breakfasts and dinners at home and then eating lunch out at lovely little towns in the area. Always sampling the great local wines of the Gaillac region. Definitely a place to return to.

Lovely house, amazing views
We stayed here for two weeks with another couple. The house isn't huge but it's comfortable. The village is lovely, lots of friendly people live there full time. A real feature is the view from the balcony, and the front bedrooms, miles and miles of lovely rolling countryside. We spent a lot of time just soaking it in. There is a lot to see in the Midi Pyrenees, particularly in Spring, the flowers are amazing. The local manager is particularly helpful and efficient. We would certainly stay here again.

About the neighborhood
Castelnau de Montmiral is a magnificent 13th century bastide (fortified town) perched on a hilltop with views over the fields and vineyards of the Vere valley, in the Tarn region. Castelnau was chosen by the government in 1991 as one of the most beautiful villages in all of France, and it was among the villages on the route of the Tour de France in 2011. The area surrounding Castelnau de Montmiral is rich in cultural, gastronomic, and outdoors offerings. The village is in the heart of the Gaillac wine region, which has been producing excellent wines for more than 1000 years. There are dozens of wineries in the countryside offering degustation (tastings). The town of Gaillac is just 13 kilometers (eight miles) away, with its Musee des Beaux Arts, natural history museum, and tenth-century Abbaye St. Michel, on the banks of the Tarn River. Gaillac hosts a large, colorful market every Friday morning. The city of Albi is less than half an hour away, with its elegant squares, many cafes and the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum and the impressive Cathedrale de Ste. Cecile. The village of St. Antonin Noble-Val is half an hour north of Castelnau, overlooking a gorge with the Aveyron river below. This is home to a popular Sunday morning market, as well as hiking, canoeing and kayaking trips and good fishing opportunities. There is also a lively performing arts scene in Gaillac, Castlenau and the surrounding bastide towns, with theater performances, jazz, and classical music festivals throughout the spring and summer months. The area offers many outdoor diversions as well - hiking in the adjacent Gresigne forest, and swimming, boating and fishing in the lake at the Base de Loisirs, just two kilometers from Castelnau. The country roads around the village are excellent for cycling and running (bicycles can be rented in Gaillac) and there are facilities for golf, tennis and horseback riding nearby.

The roads around Castelnau are well suited for hiking and bicycling (Bike hire is available in Gaillac). There is train service to Gaillac, 13 kms from Castelnau.
